Have you been feeling uncomfortable with your smile lately? Perhaps, you feel like you have bulging or overgrown gums? Many people notice small imperfections in their smiles when they look at themselves in the mirror. Some feel like their teeth look short compared to the size of their gums. If you feel like the size or shape of your gums is denting your perfect smile, we recommend you try gum reshaping.
What Is Gum Reshaping?
When you come in for gum reshaping, our professionals will use special tools and techniques to modify the size and shape of your gums. Also known as gum contouring, it helps corrects problems such as uneven gum lines, bulging gums, bulging teeth, and uneven gum tissue across the jaws.
For patients who have too much gum tissue, the teeth appear short compared to the size of their jaws and gums. Our professional will take out excessive gum tissue to expose a bigger part of the underlying tooth using special tools. This exposure will make the tooth appear bigger than it previously was. The result will make your smile less “gummy.”
Patients who have suffered from gum recession have teeth that appear bigger or longer in the mouth. A receding gum line will also put the roots of your tooth at risk of bacterial infection. When you get your gum reshaped, the receded gum line gets covered with grafted gum tissue, making the teeth appear smaller.
Who Is a Candidate for Gum Reshaping?
Gum contouring is a solution to many gum problems. Many people around the world have found the key to unlocking their smile in gum reshaping. Before you come in for this procedure, we recommend you come for an oral examination first. This will be the first step in ensuring that your teeth and gums are in perfect health and ready for cosmetic surgery. Contact us for more information on gum reshaping.
